One Year Later Montage Deer Valley Expands Automation Offerings, Welcomes Control4 into Residences

After a year of hospitality success, Park City's Montage Deer Valley establishes Control4 as a standard, making the automation system available within the community's new residential units

Salt Lake City, UT - August 15, 2012 - Control4, a leading innovator in residential and light commercial automation systems, announced today that the newly built, luxury Montage Deer Valley Residences will feature Control4 smart home solutions.

In April of 2011, Montage Deer Valley unveiled the Control4® hospitality solution in a total of 154 deluxe guest rooms and 66 suites within the resort. Control4 implementation within the Montage Deer Valley resort includes automation of lighting and temperature, fireplace control, effortless entertainment, remote controlled privacy settings and energy saving features - all easily customizable to enhance the guest experience.

"I remember talking to a guest and they said 'I want the TV to turn to Fox News at 6:00 a.m. and I want the fireplace to come on, the lights to adjust to this setting and the thermostat to reach 72 degrees,'" said David Mars, Montage Deer Valley Resort Manger. "And at 6:00 a.m., the whole thing happened. He said it was magnificent. So I think that's a testament to how easy this is to utilize, right there in your own hotel room."

Overall, the Control4 hospitality solution offers an excellent balance for both guests and resort management by providing in-room automation services for the guest's enjoyment and convenience, combined with an integrated energy management tool that has promoted better business practices and helped to streamline operations.

"What's really nice about this system from a hotelier's perspective is that it allows us to minimize our carbon footprint," added Mars. "When a guest checks out, it immediately tells the room to turn all the lights off and it takes the thermostat to a temperature that minimizes the amount of energy. In hotels past, when people brought up connectivity and automation in a room, it was because it didn't work or it was too challenging or frustrating. We never hear that from our guests. That's a big benefit of Control4."

Now, just a little over one year since the introduction of Control4 in the resort, the Montage Deer Valley is offering Control4 smart home technology to owners of its new private residences. Offering the ultimate home-away-from-home experience in the comfortable, relaxed style of a magnificent ski home, the 80 masterfully crafted residences, ranging from one to four bedrooms with 1,200 to 6,800 square feet of living space, are located on the upper six floors of the Montage Deer Valley resort building. Buyers are presented with the opportunity to outfit their new digs with the latest in Control4 smart home technology.

With Control4 comes the freedom of choice and nearly endless possibilities as Montage Deer Valley private residence owners are given complete creative control to pick and choose which aspects of the system they want integrated into their new home; whether they want to create a truly custom home entertainment experience, extend control over lighting scenes and energy management, or enhance, automated security solutions. Based on their unique lifestyles and what they wish to achieve with Control4, residence owners can choose to start small with a one-room automation solution or opt for total home control throughout the entire residence.

"Both hotel guests and homeowners are searching for the ultimate in comfort and convenience, whether that be at a world class resort or in their own home; and Control4 integration within the Montage Deer Valley does just that," said Jim Arnold, Senior Vice President of Sales for Control4 "This is the kind of technology that not only enhances quality of life, but significantly simplifies it as well."

"The experience we had in dealing with Montage Deer Valley and Control4 was unique," said Danny Moreno, Vice President of Sales at Aurant. "The hotel rooms and residential units are really quite something to experience. We encourage everyone to see what the Montage has to offer - room automation is just the icing on the cake."

Both the Montage Deer Valley resort and residencies offer a majestic outlook onto the grounds and mountainside, as well as stunning panoramic views down the valley trails. New properties at Montage Deer Valley are currently on the market; further details on the development are available at
